Completely different take from Richard Thompson's original.

Bonnie sings it with sadness - our love is over and I'm heartbroken and sad.

Richard sings it with bitterness - our love is over and I hope you rot in hell you miserable bitch.

Nice cover, but not as gut-wrenchingly great as from the one who was feeling it when he wrote it.

Not a fan of yelling female vocalists (see American Idol) but Bonnie is an exception with her cool grove and great styling. A class act to my ears.

For all practical purposes the band Dinosaur Jr = the man J. Mascis who released a really good CD last year (2014) named "Tied To A Star".

 
Lou Barlow, the other founding member of Dinosaur Jr is has been very active making music as well since then, and still is.  He and Mascis have recorded some new Dinosaur Jr albums of late.
